I just cancelled my order because my uncle decided to sell his Arc. He bought it because he thought it was pretty, but he's a major noob. It's in perfect condition. I will have his device tonight for 400 euros. I can't wait. Is swype possible to download via Android market?
AnonD-6487, 19 Apr 2011damn this phone is over-rated!! wtfLol! So was the sgs, it became the biggest selling mobile last year.
AnonD-2731, 19 Apr 2011is it true this phone cant play movies that are downloaded from web??? which formats can it pl... moreWell if u have the web to download movies, then surely u can get a format converter? which converts certain formats of movies to other formats, much the same as a mp3 comverter does.
I bought the arc cuz of all the hype. I actually upgraded from ny HTC incredible S, a week of using the arc made me realise I actually downgraded!! Only good thing about this phone is the camera & nothing more. I used it for a total of 2 weeks & just today I finally upgraded for reals this time to the HTC desire S. If u guys are looking for a phone with an amazing camera & can compromise on the features of what a smartphone should be get it. But if u can compromise the camera then the desire a us ur best choice. I learned this the hard way after wasting arnd 400 dollars extra. But, I'm finally satisfied now with my desire s
I'm a SE big fan... I have like 4 sets of SE, S700i, C905i, Satio, Xperia 1, I have literally been awaiting for this mobile set (SE ARC)... But now I'm so damn confused... :(
I have an option of SE Arc, LG Optimus 3d, BB and iphone 4...
Now, of all this, I was first preferring only and only SE, but after seeing LG, I'm impressed with it... It's just like... WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW... shall I go for SE shall I go for LG and iphone is just boasting... DAMN!!!...
Dear Friends... HELP!!! Tell me which one...

Hey everyone. I am wel aware of all technoloties bt hw realy it wrks is really imprtnt. I hv xperia x10, arc, samsung galaxy nd LG android all in my home. Nd believe no one is like xperia arc. No one hv btery backup better dn xperia. My other family members are planning to purchase arc on the exchange of other sets. Arc means jealousy to others. Ys it really works.
Sonia, 19 Apr 2011I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and I am very satisfied with it. I had many different phones... morecan u pls tell me dat does it play the downloaded video files from the internet and hows the battery backup...m planning to buy but am confused over dese two points.....

AnonD-272, 19 Apr 2011No it is totally wrong, both cores shares the work, it is how it is built, multi core is for e... moreStop talking about dual cores. Android does not even have mobile software to support it now, how do you know any phone will fully utilize its dual core function. It may be running like a single core phone with a 2nd core acting as support. And don't talk about honeycomb, its for tablets at the moment.
Obsession, 18 Apr 2011hey guys, im a SonyEricsson Addict and own SATIO so its with good quality and camera i love it... moreTo obssession....
U can check some of my previous posts in this forum...u will find link... Its the comparision of arc vs iphone 4....!!!
No doubt that arc won easily....!!!
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2011I am aware of all of that comparison, and you are correct. My point is that, flagship phones f... moreWith regards to "flagships" needing every feature out there, tbh alot of people complain about video call but most of the people who buy the phone wont use that feature.
To Sonia, You can buy a stylus for the phone, its called a capacitive stylus, which i bought for my x10, but i prefered my fingers, its quicker and easier.But im sure for a Woman, especially with nail extensions a stylus will come in handly.( btw the stylus was made by nokia and can be used on any capacitive touch screen handset )
I cant wait for the arc to be released in my country and working in the cellphone industry people still ask me about my x10, even although its discontinued here :(
Sonia, 19 Apr 2011I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and I am very satisfied with it. I had many different phones... moreThis is a better phone than the galaxy s1 or s2 whatever...the amoled screen in samsung displays false colours which doesnot seem real but this phone has a reality display with the bravia engine on which is the best....i personally feel this display the best...and it looks gorgeous...i v bn using it for 9 days now and no lags nothing....i love it ......thank you
I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and I am very satisfied with it. I had many different phones (over 30) and this is the best one. I decided to purchase it (from ebay) because I was tired of waiting for Samsung GS2 and I don't regret it. It takes wonderful pictures and videos with really high resolution. Playing music is wonderful, with the sound clear and high just like my laptop and many other features. I have fund only two difficulties that with a bt of patience one can overcome them. It takes a little bit to boot and start from the moment you push the top button. Secondly since I have long nails I find it a little bit hard to type messages. The phone cannot be used with a stylus pen. I was used to use my nail extensions instead of the stylus pen which was very easy but this phone like many androids responds only to the real touch of the finger. However, not a big deal and probably this latter problem is only for some girls. The rest of this phone is wonderful. No problem at all. It is also very very light to carry, but if you buy the silver one ensure that you get a protective cover because it is very delicate.
I think I have made a very good decision not to wait anymore. I made a good deal also buying it from a trusted seller from ebay. If it wasn't for some customs taxes imposed by my country, the deal would have been much advantageous. In my country this phone is selling for 650 euros but I got it for less still including shipping and customs.
My rate would be a 9 to this phone.
Obsession, 18 Apr 2011hey guys, im a SonyEricsson Addict and own SATIO so its with good quality and camera i love it... moreThe Satio is totally different to the Arc...as it uses android...and is heaps better than the iphone 4g...
AnonD-2731, 18 Apr 2011well i think the multi core kicks in when the first core reaches 100% not 50 50.No it is totally wrong, both cores shares the work, it is how it is built, multi core is for efficient and power saving and much more speed, dual-core will only drive the total CPU usage to 50% and %0%,search and do some research,
[deleted post]I am aware of all of that comparison, and you are correct. My point is that, flagship phones from LG with the likes of Optimus Black can play divx,xidv, record avi format and has 2mp fron facing camera.
Bottom line is that, you cannot call the Arc as a flagship phone because of its mediocore ability!
